Now normally if I can help
But I don't spend a lot of time in a principal's office
What? 9'o clock
Now as I get to school, I hear the late bell ringin'
Runnin' through the halls, I hear the Glee Club singin'
Get to the office, I can hardly speak
'Cause it's the third late pass that I got this week
So to my first class, I run an' don't walk
All I hear is my sneakers an' the scratchin' of chalk
An' as I get to the room, I hear the teacher say
Mr. Young, I'm very happy that you could join us today
I try to sit down so I can take some notes
But I can't read what the kid next to me wrote
An' if that wasn't enough to make my mornin' complete
As I try to get up, I find this gum on my seat
An' with the seat stuck to me, I raise my hand
An' say, Excuse me but can I go to the bathroom, Ma'am?
The teacher got upset an' she screamed out, No
It's off the principal's office you go
12 o'clock comes with mass hysteria
Everybody rushes down to the cafeteria
Picked up my tray to have Thursday's lunch
An' as I tried the apple sauce, I heard it crunch
I'm runnin' up the stairs with my front tooth broken
The nurse just laughed an' said you must be jokin'
I looked up at her with a smile on my face
No joke 'cause my front tooth is out of place
So I walked to school with ice on my lip
The nurse's late pass like a gun on my hip
My books are real heavy, I'm walkin', I'm draggin' it
No school lunch next week, I'm brown-baggin' it
Forget class, I'ma shoot some ball
With the late pass, I got no trouble at all
But then the nurse walks up an' says, What do you know?
It's office to the prinicipal's office you go
Passin' notes is my favorite pastime
I can't wait to find a girl to pass mine to
To express my feelin'
Give me a week, B an' the girl'll be dealin'
Now one young lady was lookin' at me
I said, Hi, my name is Marvin, known as Young MC
But then the bell rang an' the teacher came in
An' that's when the game of passin' notes would begin'
I wrote the first note, told her she was fine
An' I hoped that the two of us could spend some time
She wrote me back an' told me, You're fine too
I'd love to go on a date an' spend some time with you
So then I sat there reelin' an' lookin' at the ceilin'
Words can't express the way that I was feelin'
Then I thought to myself the sure way to get her
Is to write another note, oh, yes, a love letter
When I finished the note, it was ready to pass
The teacher took it an' read it right in front of the class
She read it word by word an' line by line
An' everybody who was laughin' was a friend of mine
Even my girl was laughin', it was too late
For me to write another note 'cause there would be no date
The teacher looked at me an' I said, I know
It's off to the principal's office I go
Yo, you think this is bad, wait 'til I get my report card
